Still wrapping up the spring sports season by honoring our star athletes.

It was an amazing year in the Lackawanna League that, for the first time in more than a decade, a team other than Abington Heights and Scranton Prep won the division crown. It actually took a playoff between Delaware Valley and Scranton Prep to determine the champion. Delaware Valley won it and Larry Hudson claimed Coach of the Year honors.

Western Wayne’s Lenny Maiocco burst upon the scene in his freshman season with a dominating spring where he went undefeated in the league and District 2, and won a first-round match in the PIAA tournament. He won the Player of the Year award.
